  1. We woke up today thinking that our goose had started to lay her first eggs of her young life.

    Turns out that we stumbled upon something very rare, we didn't know it at the time.. we found a massive egg with a small egg inside. There is a story we found on the Telegraph UK that outlines the the same in chickens but not ducks!

    Here is a photo of what we found, the rest is at fb.com/apricotvalleywaterfowl

    That is really neat, love how much darker the inside egg is also.

    Wow!
    That is awesome! :)
     
  4. I think the outside she'll is so light because of the size?

    Looks like your goose was laying in advance. [​IMG]

    Seriously, though, that is really cool! I can't say I've ever seen anything like that before.
